, the post-debate political landscape seems rather different. a whopping 67% think mitt romney won the debate. 25% for president obama. there's a long way to go in this debate and the divide between left and right is growing. th brings me to tonight's battleground america. the debate you have been waiting for. jennifer granholm versus newt gingrich. she's the former governor of michigan. he's of course, the former presidential candidate and speaker of the house. just as in last night's debate, we are running a clock at the bottom of your screen to keep track of speaking time for our debaters although frankly, i want a real debate. if you two decide to go at each other, chew each other to pieces, that's fine with me. we'll forget all about the clock. if i want to interrupt and pick you up on any inconsistencies in your arguments, i will be piling in with impunity also ignoring the clock. so the clock really is just a visual tool to amuse viewers at home. welcome to you both. let me start with you, jennifer granholm. the opening question is what the hell was wrong with barack obama last

would win. on the other side, the liberal who says the debates are make or break for mitt romney. >>> also, marie osmond. what it would mean to her to see a mormon president. >> there's a lot of strange things said about, you know, our faith. >> marie osmond on her faith and family. >>> and my exclusive with european ryder cup winners, ian poulter and justin rose. a sporting moment so extraordinary even the men in the middle of it can't quite believe it happened. >> it really was one of the most remarkable comebacks i can think in any kind of sport. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. our big story tonight, neck and neck with 36 days to go until the election, the latest cnn/orc poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 47%, within the margin of error. the thing both sides are counting on to change it, wednesday's debate. president obama is in nevada for two days of practice sessions with david axelrod and david plouff. mitt romney is counting on his secret weapon, ann, out on the trail. >> this country is ready for a turnaround. this country is ready --

complacent, he's now looking a bit deflated. he's got to come back. if mitt romney wins the last two debates -- >> oh, sure it's close enough that obama cannot afford to have two more performances like he did in denver. there is such a thing as momentum, it can be based on the narrative people are telling about the race. remember how much momentum obama had before the debate after the 47% tape and the convention. if anything, you want to bet on the race reverting back to the long term average. >> what the debate showed me was just how important the television power can be for the selection because the 47% scandal, as it was really, should have brought him down, really, mitt romney. it was so awful. you could have thought in previous election campaigns that could have been the game changer. looking at it now in totality, barack obama's poor performance at the debate has been more damaging to him than the 47% was to mitt romney. >> i think potentially. look, the debate was watched by 70 million people which is a lot more than the 47% tape. so a lot of good momentum that obama had in september

just 29 days to go until the election, our big story tonight, mitt romney takes that post-debate bounce and boy, does he run with it. the latest pew poll conducted after last week's debate puts romney firmly in the lead of president obama, 49 to 45. in the same poll in september, the president had a 51-43 lead. romney seems to be gaining ground with women. in a moment, i will ask polling guru nate silver what it all really means. meanly, a newly energized candidate romney is wasting no time pressing his advantage, today hitting the president with tough talk on foreign policy, including the deadly attack on americans in libya. >> this latest assault can't be blamed on a reprehensible video insulting islam, despite the administration's attempts to convince us of that for so long. no, as the administration has finally conceded, these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists who use violence to impose their dark ideology on others, especially on women and girls who are fighting to control much of the middle east today and who seek to wage perpetual war on the west. >> joining m

earlier because you have debated against both mitt romney and barack obama. interestingly, romney is believed from the latest polls to have won 67% to 25% against barack obama this time. when you went head-to-head with obama in 2008, the polls said 51% obama, 38% mccain. do you think you would have done better against the obama that was debating this week? >> i think so, piers, but you know, it would sound like i am now trying to rewrite history or i would have done better. you know, i never tried to do any of that looking back and certainly not in anger or bitterness. but i thin it is true that during the 2008 campaign, the president or then senator obama had no record to defend, and one of the reasons why mitt did so well in this debate was because mitt was -- i think very legitimately, attacking his record, whether it be the $90 billion in subsidies for energy or a number of the other things that he pointed -- the failure of dodd-frank, and so the president had a record to defend this time, but one, do not underestimate the president of the united states. he will come back stro

mitt romney's debate preparation, his senior advisor, former senator jim tallent. welcome to you. >> good to be with you, piers. >> how is he getting on, the candidate? because this is potentially a make or break debate for mitt romney. >> yeah, it certainly is a big debate and a big debate for the country. well, he's worked hard. the president is a good debater and he's been in this -- on this spotlight before, so you know, governor romney is probably a little bit the underdog but i think he's going to be ready. he's going to be ready on the issues which is really what this election's about. >> there's a massive game at the moment of both sides downplaying expectation. so far, even if mitt romney just makes the stage, you guys could declare a triumph and a glorious victory. it's getting a bit ridiculous. the truth is mitt romney spent most of the first half of this year debating, so he should have the advantage, shouldn't he? >> well, i expect him to do well. i don't think -- what an election's about, what this one's about, piers, we can't go on like this with unemployment this

head as governor of california. what's his debate advice for president obama and mitt romney? >> you've got to be able to look right into the screen and to communicate with the people. >> what does arnold schwarzenegger want to hear from the candidates? >> how are they going to bring both of the parties together and compromise rather than getting stuck in the idealogical corners. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. our big story tonight, d-day. debate day is just4 hours away. president obama and mitt romney are deep into their final debate preparation as the clock ticks down for the big event in denver. meanwhile, their top surrogates are out on the campaign trail. paul ryan speaking out for romney in iowa. >> a handful of states will determine this outcome. a handful of states will determine which way our country goes. so you not only have a huge responsibility, you have a tremendous opportunity. >> meanwhile, michelle obama has been stumping for her husband, the president, in ohio. >> this election will be even closer than the last one. that is the only gua

. >> what words would you have for mitt romney, given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think you know the debates are very important. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's gonna double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is because the median income is as low as 1995. until the current election season, republicans and democrats supported both the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit. i doubled the earned income tax credit. it was signed under the tax credit. reagan started it. we started it with a strong support of republicans in congress. president bush dealt with that, then president obama increased the earned income tax credit for families with more than three children. this is a rejection of basically more than three decades of bipartisan policy to support working families. it's not a bunch of free loaders. there's only 4% of the total population who don't pay federal income tax and don

those debates that may not watch the next two, that saw a mitt romney that was a direct contradiction to the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of attack ads, especially in swing states that the obama campaign spent painting mitt romney as some kind of insensitive, clueless bank account that became an islands kind of guy, and he wiped all that away. and also i think it was pretty clear that for the first time the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i

in a moment. you've been one of the only people who debated both barack obama and mitt romney so you're in a unique place to tell me what you made of the new style romney and indeed, obama. before we get there, though, today's big news on the jobs front. whichever way you spin this from the republican side, this has to be good news not only for the president but also america, that the number's now gone down to 7.8% for t first time going below 8% in his presidency. >> well, i think that's bound to be good news but i also think you have to take it in the context that 7.8% is of course still unacceptably high but it is good news, and i think it's going to be of some help to the president. but certainly with the numbers of unemployed americans we have now, 23 million i guess it is, it's still an unacceptable situation. i think the president will concede that. >> jack welch has said today unbelievable job numbers, he tweeted. the chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so they change the numbers. is there any merit to the argument that these numbers aren't quite what they seem? >
